Some FAQs

Q: Would it be better to start with an e-book, or a printed book or both together?

A: Currently we always begin with an e-book edition with the option to publish a printed edtion later on. An e-book edition is quicker and less costly to get published and will give us an idea of how popular it is with our reading public.

In order to qualify for a printed edition there will have to be a pre-existing demand. Authors who are active in the world and thus have a need will get a printed edition. By 'active' we mean that they have their own network, give public lectures, workshops, run groups etc.. We require them to order and pay for at least 20 books to justify the print run. Once we are in print, their book will feature on our web site and may also be ordered by bookshops.

Q: How big does my manuscript have to be?

A: We aim for between 60 000 and 100 000 words in order for us to achieve a reasonable spine width and to offer value to the buyer.

Q: How long does it take from approval to in print date?

A: From 3 to 5 months. This will include three sets of proofs to be read and corrected.

Q: What about editing?

A: We do a certain amount of editing in house, but if a book needs major work or even partial re-writing, then we recommend the services of our freelance editor.

Q: Will my book be available internationally?

A: In general your book will only be distributed internationally if there is a demand. Authors who are situated in the UK, the USA or Australia and can create a demand for their book will get an international edition printed in their own country as well as an e-book edition.

Q: What about online bookstores?

A: Our titles are listed in all major online stores (and quite a few smaller ones ) examples of which include Amazon (all branches), Take-a-lot (South Africa), Barnes and Noble (USA and UK),  Kobo Books, Chapters !ndigo (Canada), Smashwords, i-Book store, FlipKart (India), Baker & Taylor and a number of others.

Q: What about eReaders?

A: All our new titles are also published as eBooks which are available on Kindle, and other eReaders such as Nook.

 

Q: What if I just want an eBook?

A: This is quite possible and might in fact be a good idea. It is a way of "testing the waters"; not going to major expenses until you have established a market. This applies especially to fiction and narrative non-fiction. Books that support practical courses, or those based on workshops are still best in physical form.

Q: Are there costs involved?

A: To make and distribute an e-book will cost USD350.00. To typeset and make a printed edition will cost a further $350.00 with a requirement to order at least 20 books. Authors get a discount of 40% so that they can make a financial recovery of the investment.

Q: What royalty do I get?

A: e-books get a royalty of 50%. Printed books only get 10% due to the costs involved.
